Documenting Community, 2020

CU Boulder Reflections on Pandemic & Quarantine

Documenting Community, 2020 archives CU Boulder student, faculty, and staff responses to the ways in which COVID-19 has affected our lives. Featured by CU Boulder Libraries' Rare and Distinctive Collections, this exhibit highlights a selection of artistic, literary, and documentary reflections on the outbreak of disease and quarantine by members of our own CU community. 

Works produced for the Documenting Community, 2020 Digital Archive, for the Shelter Project offered by the Center for Humanities & the Arts, and a community poem created by the CU Boulder Libraries Arts & Humanities Department and the Libraries Teaching & Learning unit - Exquisite Hope - are all featured here. 

A special thanks to the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries and to Jennifer Ho, Director, and Sharon van Boven of the University of Colorado Boulder's Center for Humanities & the Arts for their support.

Featuring adaptation of Ben Holubiak's It isn't Though of Varsity Lake and Bridge, May, 2020.
